Monsoon rains arrived on schedule on the coast of the Indian state of Kerala, but they spread inland quicker than usual, with a rainfall 23 percent above average from June 1�"12.
Many parts of the state were badly hit with flooding as rivers overflowed to nearby villages. Without electricity or proper transportation, families are unable to buy and cook food to survive. The rain also triggered an early planting season for many summer crops, but farmers are unable to do any work in their fields.
On June 25, Gospel for Asia Compassion Service teams began working with local government officials to host relief camps and distribute ration packets that contain rice, sugar and tea leaves. The teams have worked in eight villages so far, and they continue to identify needy villages.
Please pray for:
God’s protection and provision for the victims of the flooding.
Favorable weather so families can restore their homes and return to their fields.
Wisdom, protection and strength as Compassion Services teams reach out to the afflicted.
Many people to meet Jesus in this time.

One hundred percent of what you give toward the field goes to the field.
Your donation will help provide food, blankets, medicine and other emergency supplies for our Compassion Services teams to take to flooded villages.
Compassion Services brings the love of Jesus to the flood victims.
